Eckywoobee @ Solaris Dutamas
A café which calls themselve the Eckywoobee sports café and located within the Solaris Dutamas I find this quite ample for shishas rather than food. The name is probably mainly due to the decorations and the sports channel that is playing all day long.
Their dishes on the menu are simple with customers mainly engaging themselves with shishas. Shisha is also known as water pipe or instrument for vaporizing and smoking flavored tobacco. The vapor or smoke is passed through a water basin (often glass-based) before inhalation. Depending on the placement of the coal above the shisha, a hookah can be used to produce smoke by burning the shisha or used to create water vapor by melting it at a lower temperature.
Previously located at TTDI plaza, Eckywoobee’s ultimate goal is to attract sports fans to the many sports equipments and tools displayed in the café. Ranging from hockey sticks, badminton racquets, F1 and football gear, tennis racquets, roller blades, boomerang, golf clubs, rugby collectibles, and many more, you’ll be spending a lot of time admiring all the embellishments like I do. While spending time admiring the displays, I tried their mushroom soup, which is super thick with assorted mushrooms, mainly the shitake mushroom but yet the pieces of mushrooms was not blended fine enough hence giving a texture that is not too ideal to the mushroom soup. The bread served with the soup was plainly toasted like anything more than that would mean putting too much effort.
The ambiance is great for long chat and chilling session with a couple of your good friends. They serve decently good beverages and the range includes the usual tea, coffee, juices and some alcoholic drinks. Beers would be beer but I don’t recall them serving draught beer but I guessed not.
The fresh fruit juice is solid fruit extract with no addition of water so the taste is as fabulous as the fruit. Probably one of the best orange fruit juice I have had in the restaurants I’ve tried within the Solaris Dutamas. The rest are ordinarily decent so we looked at the pricing and I thought it was pretty reasonable.
After all, people mainly come for the shisha instead of their food. This is reassured when my soup took more than 30 minutes to arrive. Guess they are not very efficient with the kitchen since their forte is the sisha. It didn’t take them long to prepare one and the berry mint flavour is something girls would really fancy. It resembles berry flavour chewing gum.
I definitely am not interested to return for their food. But good ambiance for shisha then this definitely tops the list.
